Marina San Miguel

We left Las Galletas after just one night, motoring to the nearby very sheltered Marina San Miguel.

View towards Marina San Miguel

San Miquel is just a golf resort and a marina but the nearby village San Blas is in walking distance, just a few kilometres away. We went for walks and a hike to Las Galletas, nice views and the path along the sea at Montana Amarilla was spectacular.

At the restaurant Alecrim we had one of the best meals, eating out, since we left Sweden.

Sailed distance 3,6 nautical miles.

Las Galletas, Tenerife

La Gomera was really nice but it was time to get closer to Gran Canaria where we have booked a berth in Puerto Rico marina for Christmas.

Leaving San Sebastian de Gomera

We left Marina San Sebastian at nine fifteen in the morning. Nice sailing at first but the wind dropped and we had to motor.

Closing in on Las Galletas

A pod of pilot whales kept us company for a while. The last miles into Las Galletas were very windy, the wind right in the nose of course. Tricky to get the mooring lines in place in the strong wind. Nice little village and we went out for a meal. The marina not so nice.

Marina del Sur, Las Galletas

Sailed distance 26,3 nautical miles.

La Gomera

After 4 days of cleaning the boat from ash we felt we had enough of La Palma and it was time to move on. We left Santa Cruz de La Palma late in the afternoon as we wanted to get to Gomera at dawn.

Approaching Marina San Sebastian

Very little wind so we motored slowly towards Marina La Gomera at San Sebastian. We arrived at 8 a´clock and had to wait at the fuel dock until the marina office opened and the marina staff showed us our berth.

San Sebastian

San Sebastian is a nice little town with a lot of restaurants and bars. Quite a lot of tourists around, mostly people hiking on the island. We rented a car for two days and drove around and saw picturesque villages and holiday resorts.

We went for several hikes, taking the bus to Garajonay national park and visited Alto de Garajonay, the highest peak on Gomera and other places of interest, a lot of nice views even if it was a little bit too cloudy or misty to get the really good views.
